2022 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild
Co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA


September 14-16, 2022 | Chicago, IL 

ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA will jointly host the annual Building Performance Analysis Conference & SimBuild for 2022. The theme of the conference, “Better Buildings, Less Carbon: Supporting the Transition to A Clean and Just Climate” focuses on improving the decision-making process through the application of simulation and modeling over the entire building life cycle. Practitioners, vendors, researchers, utility and government officials, and owners will address the practices of energy modeling and building performance simulation using existing simulation tools, software development, and future simulation research and applications.

The anticipated conference program consists of Keynote Speakers, Invited Speakers, a Call for Papers, a Call for Presentations and the eighth ASHRAE LowDown Showdown.
